The hike in sites on the northern loop are incredible! Tons of privacy, right on the creek, and really close to the Thunder Knob trailhead. Beautiful views from the quick hike to the top- worth it to get a good view of the lake.

We found this campground to be very family friendly, with picnic tables, bear lockers, and fire rings. The water was the coldest we've ever dared to swim in and we were there in July. Bring a wet suit or lots of courage!

Beautiful campground with sites right next to the water. All the sites have picnic tables, bear boxes and a fire pit. The bathrooms and modern and clean.

Enjoy the nearby hikes of Thunder Knob and Thunder Creek. Be sure to stop at Diablo Lake Vista Point for a beautiful overlook of Diablo Lake.

We chose a hike in site on the northern loop and loved it! We liked privacy, and it was still super close to the water. We did a day hike through Heather Maple Pass loop and I would highly recommend it- one of the best hikes in Washington.
